Don't Be a Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice in the Hood
Does a movie with a title like that even deserve a review? This is a film that I found hilarious when I was 14, so when my 14 year old cousin wanted to watch it, I decided to take a trip down memory lane and see if I found it to be as funny as I did 13 years ago. Sadly, I found myself laughing more often than not at this downright stupid spoof of early 90s hood movies, done by the Wayans brothers. Made in the same vein as the Zucker/Abrahams spoofs, DBAMTSCWDYJITH is good for a few belly laughs, even if you do leave dumber when the credits roll, than when you first hit play. (The picture is from the Bernie Mac cameo, the funniest part of the movie)
